Oakland Raiders turn to basketball world to add to roster

The San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints have turned to the basketball world to add athletic tight ends in Antonio Gates and Jimmy Graham, now the Oakland Raiders have followed the trend. The Oakland Raiders announced on Friday that they have signed Oral Roberts and more recently, Cal State Fullerton basketball player, Andre Hardy.

Hardy, 6′ 5″ 250 pounds, has not played football since high school but he does come from an NFL pedigree. His father, Andre, played for three seasons in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
